This leads us to one question.
Why are smartphone brands removing chargers from their boxes?
These are just speculations but let’s check out the reasons why smartphone brands are suddenly removing chargers from their boxes.
- As part of their increasing focus on sustainability and environmental initiatives, many tech businesses are considering attaining zero waste by 2030 or earlier to address this growing waste problem. A smart place to start is by shipping phones without a charger in the box.
- Only the product manual, other documents, and the phone itself need to be placed within the package since there is no charger included. As a result, the packing should be considerably smaller, allowing a manufacturer to send more phones while also reducing the cost of freight per device.
